With Seven Days to Celebrate — Open Your my Social Security Account Today!

July 20, 2015 • By

Smiling Couple Looking at LaptopWe’re turning 80 this year, and boy, are we proud! We’re proud of our history, and we proudly remain committed to serving America, especially our most vulnerable people, including retirees, children, and individuals with disabilities.

We’ll be celebrating this milestone by declaring July 19 through 25 as National my Social Security Week.

Acting Commissioner Carolyn Colvin is hosting an event on Capitol Hill Thursday to talk about the importance of our programs and to highlight the accomplishments of the past 80 years. Social Security has evolved with the times. For example, we no longer fill out Social Security cards by hand or typewriter. And, you no longer have to come to our office to apply for benefits.

You can join in the celebration by opening a free, personal my Social Security account giving you secure and immediate online access to your personal Social Security information.

my Social Security lets you view your Social Security Statement, verify your earnings, and see estimates of the future retirement, disability, and survivor benefits you and your family may receive based on your earnings.

Amid all these changes, one thing will remain the same – our relationship with you, our customers. Social Security touches the lives of nearly everyone from the issuing of your Social Security card at birth until death – and even after – when we provide benefits for your eligible survivors.

See what 80 years of experience has taught us? Don’t wait! Join the millions and discover the benefits of opening a personal my Social Security account today. Let the celebration continue!

    I’m having issues with signing in to my online account. I know my information is correct for when I try to recover my password, but the system does not recognize it, and when I try to set up a new account it tells me I already have an account. I see no other options to get me back into my account.

    Those using my information need to be shamed and brought to Justice. It’s on its way for my years I suffered and wages lost. I want the State of Missouri investigated for Social Security fruad and my files removed out of their hands. This State is no longer qualified to make determinations for disability.
